I spent all yesterday morning sorting out the garden , with all the wet weather the grass has been growning to great heights in rapid time. I did a lot of weeding and sorting out my hanging basket and plants.
I must add i was totally worn out but had promised my dd we would visit the local allotment who are having a fair..........i wanted to go and see peoples hard work and efforts. Some grow veg some just flowers, having an allotment site nearby is great for the enforcement as a lot of mini beast are encouraged and wild life. I have seen blue tits, Wren birds, foxes, as i type a squirrel is running up and down my garden wall. We have had several frogs in the garden and i believe this is all due to the allotments being over my garden wall. Pretty butterflies are my dd favorite. The downside is the manure........the smell and fly population that comes with it esp during the summer months. Also the fires they burn on weekends esp Sunday's when i have just put a wash out to dry! You see you can't have it all!
Here are some pictures i took.

Differnt types of flowers growing
The Veg was all autioned off at the end.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) also said: “The most burdensome prayers for the hypocrites are salaat al-’isha’ and salaat al-fajr, but if they only knew what they contain, they would come even if they had to crawl.” (Reported by Imaam Ahmad, al-Musnad, 2/424; Saheeh al-Jaami’, 133).
“Whoever prays fajr is under the protection of Allah. Do not put yourselves in a situation where Allah has to call you to account for your negligence.” (Reported by al-Tabaraani, 7/267; Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 6344).
“Angels come to you in shifts by night and by day. They meet at salaat al-fajr and salaat al-‘asr, then those who had stayed with you at night ascend, and are asked by the One Who knows better than they: ‘How did you find My servants?’ They say, ‘We left them when they were praying, and we came to them when they were praying.’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/33).
“The best of prayers in the sight of Allah is the dawn prayer on Friday, in congregation.” (Reported by Abu Na’eem in al-Hilyah, 7/207, and in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 1566).
According to a saheeh hadeeth: “Whoever prays al-Bardayn will enter Paradise.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2/52). Al-Bardayn are fajr and ‘asr.
(2) The Muslim should understand the seriousness of missing salaat al-fajr. This is explained by the hadeeth already quoted:
